5. Tyler Eifert, Cincinnati Bengals
If Tyler Eifert could ever stay healthy, he would be among the league’s top 10 tight ends year after year.
Unfortunately for Eifert, stringing together healthy games has been the most difficult hurdle to overcome in his professional career.
He re-signed with the Bengals last offseason on a one-year ‘prove it’ deal and unfortunately, it was much of the same. Eifert played just four games for the Bengals this past year and has played 14 games in the past three seasons combined.
Despite his inability to stay healthy, Eifert remains a worthwhile risk/reward type of player.
When he is playing, he’s one of the most dangerous threats at the tight end position in the NFL to score.
He had 18 receiving touchdowns from 2015-16 in 21 games played.
The fact of the matter is, good tight end help in the NFL is hard to find, and pretty much everyone has players at this position getting hurt every year. Eifert is as talented of a player as you will see hit the open market, so if the Broncos decide to pour the majority of their cash into other positions, he could be had on a one-year deal for relatively cheap.
